Koupon Media, a Tech Wildcatters alum, Ranked 406th on Inc’s 500 List

Koupon Media is a Tech Wildcatters alumni, that was just announced as being on the prestigious Inc. 500 List of America’s Fastest Growing Private Companies.  Tech Wildcatters, the iconic Dallas-based startup accelerator, saw Koupon Media graduate from its Class of 2011.

Koupon Media is one of the world’s largest mobile coupon platforms taking mobile coupons to the next level; and late last year had delivered more than 500 million mobile offers, reaching this milestone in less than five years.  That translates to $100 million in gross margins for its’ clients with their offers driving 20 million store trips.

Of their spot on the Inc. 500 list, CEO Bill Ogle says, “We’re honored to be featured as a mobile technology leader.  Mobile has fundamentally redefined how businesses interact with their consumers, and we’re proud to lead the charge.  Today’s acknowledgement provides an incredible validation of Koupon Media’s dominance in the quickly rising mobile couponing market.”

Koupon is a mobile offer platform and redemption network with offers for more than 43,000 retailers and the biggest CPG brands out there.  Offering retailers customer data, along with increased opportunities for sales, allowed for the client to also gain rich data and analytics to strengthen and influence future discount campaigns.

Koupon Media earned the 406th spot on the Inc. 500, which is the top-tier of the broader Inc. 5000 list and recognizes three years of nearly 1,000% revenue growth.  The list of Inc. 5000 are the 5000 most competitive businesses with an average three-year growth of 433%.  With an aggregate revenue of the 5000 $200 billion and the companies on the list collectively creating 640,000 jobs over the last three years, the power of these companies is massive.

With Koupon Media in the top 10% of the top 5000 companies is extremely impressive considering the relative youth of the company.  The Inc. 5000 list does much more than just highlight the top organizations in the country.  The list also identifies the fastest growing industries, this year energy (227.4% aggregate growth rate), media (195.2%), and Education (194.7%); the fastest growing states, California (666 companies), Texas (395 companies); and Florida (338 companies); and the top metro areas, of which Dallas-Fort Worth comes in sixth.
